eCheck Processing Solutions

Based on the previous difficulty in obtaining a credit card CBD merchant account, (before AllayPay's current solutions), merchants simply needed to be able to receive payments from their customers.  As customers saw the trend of their favorite online stores being unable to receive credit cards, they started becoming extremely comfortable with the modern concept of writing a check, called eCheck.

CBD Processing Education

FAQs From Our Merchants

What exactly are CBDs?


Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 85 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant and is the ONLY psychoactive cannabinoid. Of the 85+ non-psychoactive cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known.




Legislative Status of CBD / Hemp oil in the United States America?


Many people ask, "If CBD Oil is legal, why do I keep getting shut down by bank and processors? The answer is very simple, most banks will The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and its derivative CBD) to be a dietary supplement (not a medication) since they are made from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state. It is also legal to ship in the United States as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis per the United States Farm Bill of 2014.




Do I Need a Doctor's Prescription or Medical Marijuana Card?


In contrast to marijuana, US federal law does allow for the cultivation, processing, and marketing of hemp and hemp products, which would include cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp, under the conditions set forth in Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014. The United States Farm Bill of 2014 permits the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp in states where hemp is legal to grow.




Why can't I just set up an ACH/eCheck account with my current bank?


​For CBD / Hemp oil merchants, banks prefer not to be the ones directly processing / enabling the transaction itself. They much prefer a separate legal entity to process the CBD transactions, and strictly be the depositor. ACH processing solutions for the CBD industry are coming soon! Check back in a 1-2 months.
